What Our Clients and Colleagues Say About Georgia Downtowns!
Joel and Alice are great at their work. They really fired up my board. As a matter of fact, I got calls the day after the retreat - people were already working on their projects!
Georgia Downtowns really knows their stuff. Of all the many strategic planning sessions I have sat through, they offered the most productive and shortest! Georgia Downtowns made an often tedious task into a team building opportunity, where we were able to really focus our energy and efforts; They pinpointed what we are all working towards and developed a plan with us. Georgia Downtowns is reliable, professional and a real pleasure to work with.
Joel and Alice are exceptional at what they do! Their knowledge, vision and attention to detail are superb. They kept our strategic planning session on task and ushered our board to a creative output. So happy to have had the privilege to work with them on our plan!
